Wonderful...reminds me of the 16mm films we used to see in class when I was a boy. Hope to see more like this.

Subject: Miss Muffet
The way Miss Muffet's eye's big out when she sees the spider made me laugh out loud. And reminded me of Gumby's similar move later on.

Subject: Little Miss Muffet and curds and whey
This is a fascinating presentation. Although the rhyme is simple enough to understand without illustration, it does show what a tuffet is.

I make curds and whey regularly, when I make kefir, a cultured drink, made with kefir grains placed in milk for 24 hours. Grains are removed and the milk sits at room temperature. Gradually it separates into curds and whey, which I drink daily for its outstanding health benefits.

I am not frightened by spiders, and I believe Miss Muffet needs counseling. She obviously has a severe case of arachniphobia.

Subject: Excellent
I have been a fan of Ray Harryhausen for years, I always did think it was sad that he never completed the Mother Goose series. It was great seeing this one, it is so brilliantly done. If it wasn't for people like Harryhausen we wouldn't have the special effects that we do today. The man was a genious. Little Miss Muffet is original, clever and beautifully done.

Subject: Early work of the Master
If your a Ray Harryhausen fan, you must check out "The Harryhausen Chronicles" documentary narrated by Leonard Nimoy. The documentary covers Ray's entire career and early enthusiasm for special effects and animation including never before seen footage of his Fairy Tale Theater animation.

You can find the documentary as a special feature on several Harryhausen DVDs including "Earth VS. the Flying Saucers"

Subject: Real 3D
I have to comment on the claim that this film is not 3 Dimensional. This is of course a GENUINE 3D animation, the puppets are real objects that have width, depth and height, the very definition of 3D.
Unlike todays digital 3D done on computer where we only ever see a 2D representation of an imagined 3D environment.
Ray Harryhausen is a giant in the industry and it's great to have an opportunity to see some of his early work.

Subject: ÃÂThere came a big spiderÃÂ?????
As people have mentioned, this is the beginning of the cute ÃÂMother Goose TalesÃÂ which you can easily find the longer form on the archives. I mean almost half the cartoon is the titles and the set-up (which is alright). The cartoon is not three dimensional of course, but it darn looks good. They somewhat fudge up the nursery rhyme. For what reason, I donÃÂt know.

Subject: Mother Goose Stories
This is the first of four fairy tales in Ray Harryhausen's Mother Goose Stories (1946). Harryhausen found himself back home after World War II with about a thousand feet of unused film stock and decided to use it to create a series of short stop-motion model animation films. To avoid the difficulties of sychronizing lip-movement and dialogue, he opted for a soundtrack and and title cards.

A fun little movie, definitely worth a download. The full Mother Goose Stories is also available at the Internet Archive, in the Prelinger Archives.
